I was unsure at first, until I received them. The quality is so luxurious. Not your regular pair of linen shorts. The fit is perfect, hits right above the knee, very classy. Perfect for a dinner night at a resort with my wife. I now will be ordering the matching top. Perfect! I am 5”11, 186 lbs with a 33 waist and the Large was on point. I had thought about the XL but they would have been too big. Probably go XL for the top. Great item!
